I cannot get .docx or .ace files to
download from the www. So, if you want to edit them, download them as a .zip file and open
in your computer. Links to .docx and .ace are here for my internal downloads.
G3X (ACE) Checklist
Garmin has an editable checklist program (ACE) for the
G3X and 695/696 units. It does not have to
be just a/c checklists, but almost any kind of note you might want at your
finger tips can be placed on the checklist. I'm unable to link this
to a .ace file, so I had to put it in a .zip file. Below is an idea
of what I have in the ACE checklist:
|Off Airport Landings|
|Engine Failed or Failing|
|Electric or Autopilot|
|ADC or AHRS Failure|
| Spiral Dives & Spins|
|Checklists - Normal
|Takeoff, Climb, Cruise|
|VFR Descent & Landing|
|After Landing & Shutdown|
|Checklists - IFR
|Pre-Descent & Descent|
|FAF - Missed|
|PAVE - I'm SAFE|
|Position Report Format|
| NORDO - IFR|
|Rules of Thumb
|Std Press, Temp & Lapse Rates|
|G3X How To...
|G3X Screen Shots|
|G3X Data Saves|
|G3X Checklist Updates|
|G3X Cockpit Display Updates|
|GDU/GPS Antenna Failure|
|G430W / G3X Interface|
|ADC or AHRS Failure|
It works with Windows XP
version 2 and higher versions plus Vista and Windows 7. You might
get an error box when selecting HELP with windows 7. To fix that,
follow the instructions in the error box for downloading a small program from MS and all
will be fine.

to download the editor.
- Download and run the self-extracting executable file and follow the
on-screen prompts to install the ACE checklist editor.
- You can create your own from scratch or download
mine and edit as desired.
- To use a checklist file with your Garmin cockpit display or portable
GPS unit, save the .ace file to the root level of an SD card and
insert it in the unit's card slot while the power is off.
- Turn the power on and wait for it to load (you won't see any change).
- Press the menu button twice and select "Checklists".
Leave the card in the Garmin.
